    We were disappointed in the major exhibit at the gallery which was a demonstration of pretentious art writing masquerading as quality criticism as the writers attempted to justify exhibiting torn plastic bags, pieces of drift wood and assemblages as works of art. Not impressed.

    If more people would review this attraction it would streak up Dunedin's 'things to do' list. Print off the map onliine before you set out. There around 30 generally large, often amusing murals within a reasonable walking distance or each other. And there seems to be a few more since the last time we visited Dunedin three years ago. Definitely worth an hour of your time.

    We just happened to be driving past and on the spur of the moment decided to stop and go inside. Although it was getting late we were made to feel so welcome and not rushed in any way. The stories told about each piece and the connections between the artists gave us a real insight into the different art works. Fabulous visit and a real treat to see not only the works on display but the passion of the gallery owners.

    Visited this wonderful gallery after hearing about the amazing window display.
    The gallery is full of art and all local artists and a great variety.
    The prices are realistic and a range to suit all budgets.

    Milford and Brett McDowell galleries and great books too. If you are visiting, make sure you wander down here for a nosey. Something for everyone, and lovely heritage buildings.

    The only reason this attraction has been marked "very good" instead of "excellent" is because of the renovations taking place that are temporarily hampering activity and display within. Still well worth a visit as these "Happy Hens" go all around the world.

    If your on a NZ cruise your ship will most likely berth at Port Chalmers for Dunedin. Before rejoining the ship take a few minutes to visit this gallery. It's only five minutes walk from the wharf entrance. Cross the street & turn left at the next corner. The Flying Whale is just a few doors up the road. A gallery displaying works by a local artist. Very whimsical offerings. Cards, prints, originals & many transferred to clothing & things like tote bags. Not your usual run of the mill souvenirs. I loved it & bought a print. Would have purchased more but it's all I have room to display at home.

    If you are a magpie when it comes to beautiful jewellery you must have a look here. Wonderful service by a knowledgable and extremely helpful young lady. She totally let me play with al the jewellery there was no snobbery that is sometime found in such a well stocked art gallery. Walked out with the most gorgeous ring from a local artist. Lovely to take home a wee bit of Otago with me.
